Bilster Berg | Saturday 22 July 2023

We’re returning to the wonderful Bilster Berg after our 5 fantastic visits in 2016/17/19/20/22. As with the last few years we’ve been able to organise a Saturday evening.

Note: This event is being run on Saturday afternoon/evening: 2pm-6pm – so 4 hours of open pit lane track time against an average of 7hrs on most days.

Modelled on the likes of the Ascari Resort in Spain, the entire circuit has been designed from scratch by Hermann Tilke, the industry’s most experienced circuit architect. He is best known for renowned F1 circuits such as Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Malaysia, Istanbul, Shanghai and has now turned his hand to creating a New Nürburgring, “The natural ‘Nordschleife flair’ with high safety standards will continue to enthuse every driver. With various ideal lines, the corners allow for approximately identical lap times, while nature itself dictates the unmistakable signature of the test track.”

It is not only the very special scenic-park-like ambiance which makes Bilster Berg so unique. The 4.2 kilometres long track has 19 bends, 44 crests and dips, more than 200 meters change in altitude and declines up to 26%. It truly is one of the great circuits in Europe.
